We hope the title of this article hasn’t confused you. After all, shouldn’t you be looking to convert your tired old PowerPoints into Prezi and not the other way around?
For nearly 7 years now we have been doing just that. A typical customer interaction for us has always started with us being asked the question “Please can you breath some new life into this Ppt deck with Prezi?”. In fact all of the Prezi examples on our website started their lives as PowerPoint presentations.
Prezi has always been an amazing tool for adding lots of wow factor and creating what we call Conversational Presentations, and of course this is something we continue to do for certain customers and certain scenarios. But now PowerPoint can also give you the same Conversational style of presenting very easily with use of its great new features like Zoom and Morph.
To show you what we mean, the below example is a conversational Prezi created for Universities UK:
And the next example is the same presentation converted into PowerPoint:
As you can see there isn’t much difference between the two examples. So which tool is the right one for you to use?
We would always recommend using both of these great tools within your business. There is no need to be limited by choosing just one of them!
If your business uses a much older version of PowerPoint and you don’t think that your IT department will be rolling out MS Office 365 (with the new Ppt features) any time soon then we’d strongly suggest you jump into using Prezi. However, if your business does already use Office 365 and has the latest version of Ppt with all the great new features then you might not need to jump ship just yet. Instead, focus more on making the most of new features like Zoom and Morph and use Prezi for certain situations.
It’s definitely an exciting time to be a presentation designer right now and we will do our best to keep you informed about new updates from both of these presentation power houses.
